And the price per pound is less than buying Hershey's chocolate at the grocery store.
16 oz = $4.19 (bittersweet, semisweet, milk and white). This couverture chocolate (they call it coating) needs to be tempered if you want to use it for coating, but it's beautiful for baking. I made tons of buttercream icing and cakes using it. You can also buy semisweet and milk chocolate chips and cocoa from them, but I couldn't find unsweetened baking chocolate.
The true confectionary coatings (next page) can just be melted to use for coating or making candy, but I wouldn't use it for baking.
Enjoy reading the history section. This fellow invented Buds, which was the precursor to Hershey's Kisses. Guess who had more advertising funds? I noticed the site doesn't mention the H-word.
Lititz, PA is a hop/skip/jump from Hershey, PA.
I recently ordered 44 pounds of Belgium chocolate at Christmas from Qzina, so I'm flush. But I can recommend the Brandywine, Bronze Medal and Cashmere chocolates from previous orders.
PS: Their site says they recently purchased Peter's Chocolates.
Jesus saves. Buddha recycles.
